mental interests and abilities
Sylvia has good mental concentration and the ability to become completely immersed in her work. Sylvia Plath seems to know things at an instinctive, nonverbal level and prefers learning through direct experience or apprenticeship rather than vicariously via books or lectures. Sylvia has mechanical ability and she works well with her hands. Plath could become adept at sculpture, pottery, carpentry, or anything that involves doing and making things manually. Biology (and related fields such as medicine) interests her as well. Sylvia Plath also has an instinctive rapport with animals, and may feel that she relates better to them than to people! Sylvia Plath tends to become narrowly focused upon her own specialized interests and may not have much to say or communicate outside that field.
Sylvia has an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom and for an ever broadening understanding of life. Sylvia Plath is the perpetual student and will be involved in higher education, philosophy, or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing, or fields of communications are also areas that interest Plath. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of hers.
Sylvia Plath appreciates aesthetics and has a fine sense of form, design, and beauty. She could develop great technical skill as an artist, designer, craftsman, or creative writer. Plath could also sell objects of beauty - artistic products, cosmetics, jewelry, etc.
Sylvia has the ability to please and harmonize well with others and a talent for assuaging strain in the relationships of other people. Her sense of humor, tact, and personal charm are a great benefit to Plath in any work with people on a one-to-one level.
Although her tact was commented on above, Sylvia Plath can also be very direct, even brutally frank, in the way she communicates, as mentioned below.
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, Plath tends to turn any conversation into a debate, and sometimes a verbal war. Sylvia Plath could be a spokesman for a righteous cause, a lawyer vigorously defending a client, a sharp analyst or critic. She is a convincing speaker, but is not especially receptive to the ideas and opinions of others. Sylvia Plath has a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Her mind works in a rather electric, inspired, sometimes brilliant way, and Sylvia Plath grasps new concepts very readily. However, her retention may be poor, as Plath tends to leap from one idea to another in a flash, and often without thoroughly digesting any of them. Her mind may race so quickly that it is hard for Sylvia Plath to sit still for any length of time. Sylvia has a highly sensitive nervous system and needs a relatively calm, stable environment to be at her best. Sylvia Plath should avoid over stimulating, frenetic places in order to stay balanced.
Her mind is deep and penetrating and she is interested in anything secret, mysterious, or hidden, including the deeper aspects of the human psyche. Sylvia Plath possesses an aptitude for private investigation, psychology and research work. Sylvia Plath is also drawn to esoteric or occult studies.
She is somewhat restless and in constant search for variety and change. Cautious in one way and optimistic in another, Sylvia Plath frequently changes her mind and her philosophy of life. She may prefer mental work and is likely to choose a scientific field.
